A review of the Redline Open Heart from Android Watches

December 6, 2012 Leave a comment

The Android Red Line Open Heart edition men’s watch from Android Watches is at first glance, a nice, but nothing spectacular sort of watch. But that is at first glance. Upon closer inspection you will find that it is a very nice watch, and that it has some cool features and a simple but eye catching design,  considering it’s low price point, especially for an Android. You can find this watch for as cheap as $130.00 if you look hard enough on the web. GreatTiming’s store happens to carry it for this amount.

Android Watches Redline Open Heart

Now, let’s talk about some of the features of this watch. It is, as you can probably gather from the “Open Heart” part of it’s name, one of android’s skeletonized watches. For those not familiar with the android watch company and their watches that feature this, it is a neat little concept that certainly makes your watch a little more interesting to look at and gives it that “wow” factor. Basically, some of the moving parts that make your watch tick so to speak, are exposed and visible in the face of the watch. Rather than hide them within the case of the watch, android has made them a focal point of the watch itself, and as you stare into the face of your watch you will see the little cogs and gears that make your watch move in action. Some people might not like this feature, and think it detracts from the uniformity of this watch. But for those in that camp; which you will know if you have read any of my prior reviews that I am most certainly not as I love the skeleton feature, go buy a Rolex or similar if you want uniformity and one boring color for your watch. The skeleton feature is there to add a little stylistic pop, which is one of the reasons that I love android watches so much. They are certainly never run of the mill.

The watch also features a Miyota 82S0 automatic, 21 jeweled movement, a large 45mm case, a double stitched genuine leather band, limited coloration options as it only comes in one scheme which is a black bezel with silver band end pieces, and like most other androids it is water resistant up to 100 meters or 330 feet.

All in all, this watch isn’t anything to write home about, but it is a nice, casual watch to wear around on your daily grind. Probably not the best if you are trying to impress big wig company execs at a board meeting or something, but then again I would hope my presentation would be a better gauge of that than my watch. I would wear it on a nice date; it isn’t overly flashy or garish and won’t make you seem like you are trying too hard, and it definitely looks better than that old mickey mouse watch you have lying around somewhere. Not even close to a favorite watch from android, but if you have less than a hundred and fifty clams in your pocket this is about as good as it gets. You can always buy a nicer watch later, right?

Overall I would have to give it about a solid 3 of 5. It looks good for it’s price, it’s price is certainly reasonable for it’s craftsmanship and features, it’s just not an amazing watch like some of Android’s other watches which aren’t too much more expensive. It’s just lacking that certain…something. It is not an ugly watch by any means, and i’m sure there are some out there who would love a nice little subdued watch such as this and think it is the perfect blend of average and above average styling. Different but not strange. But it just doesn’t speak my language like some of the other Androids that I have, like my Mystique Skeleton.

But hey, we can’t all be winners right?
